BLP: Put out the Dems
Amid references to Hitler, the French Revolution, the 1937 riots and acts of terror, members of the Barbados Labour Party (BLP) called on Barbadians to remove the Democratic Labour Party (DLP) from office.
At a late Friday night public meeting at Ellerton Corner, St George, a modest crowd heard from several speakers, including party leader Mia Mottley, homeboy Dwight Sutherland, Pan Africanist and MP Trevor Prescod, and MP and former Attorney General Dale Marshall.
It was the latest in a series of meetings held by the BLP as it applies pressure to the DLP administration over taxation, paying for tertiary education and lack of action on issues.
Prescod, limited to 15 minutes, used his time to tear into the DLP administration as “backward and wicked” and without vision. He spoke of a number of taxes, a fully paid but suspended police commissioner and a change of law to appoint a chief justice.
